Wireless Android Auto to be Available to Everyone With Android 9.0 P
Recently Google announced they had turned on wireless Android Auto functionality, however it was only available for a few select Pixel and Nexus models. Despite earlier reports that wireless Android Auto would only be available for Android 9.0 P powered phones, Google as confirmed that they would be working with phone manufacturers to make Android 8.0 Oreo phones to also enable wireless Android Auto compatible.
If you don’t have one of the Pixel or Nexus models that are currently enabled for wireless Android Auto, you can try out the Android 9.0 P public beta to test out the wireless functionality. Keep in mind the public beta is only available for the following phones:
Google Pixel 2
Google Pixel 2 XL
Google Pixel XL
Nokia 7 Plus
Oppo R15 Pro
Sony Xperia XZ2
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
While there is no official release date for Android 9.0 P, we’re probably looking at an August release date if previous rollouts are any indication.
